Private Edward Robinson


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Roll of Honour

Private Edward Robinson, brother of CSM John Robinson, was also wounded in the leg on April 30th, and is in Salford Royal Hospital, Manchester. Writing home he says he is going on A1, and does not think he ever felt better and happy enough. 

"It got me out of a lot of trouble in the way of shells, etc., flying about. There are none here, and I have much to be thankful for". He got wounded at Arras in the great push, and was in from the start on the 9th April. "We came out for a rest about the 25th, and went in again on the 30th, and I had not been up a quarter of an hour when I got hit. I was just carrying the first case back to the dressing station. No one else was hit fortunately. The lads we were with were very good. They bound me up, and the officer sent me straight down to Arras in a car, and from there I went to a CCS, where Norman is stationed".
